Righteous Kill

2008 / Jon Avnet > It might be a tad bit unfair for having such high expectations for this film just because of Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino, but that’s just the way it is. For us to have waited this long for the duo to appear on the same screen, this is an atrocity. It’s a tough task for Avnet, no doubt, but that doesn’t excuse the fact that the sole purpose of the film is to misdirect the viewer. Nothing else. No story, no morality, no nothing. Not to mention boring. The faults here must come from all-around. I mean, seriously, I can’t imagine the script sounding even remotely good for both of these legends to jump onto it? It’s best to erase this from our memories and hope for another hurrah from the two.
